No classroom or testing accommodations will be given unless the student has a psychological report indicating the appropriateness of classroom and testing accommodations.

"Accommodations are alterations in the way tasks are presented that allow children with learning disabilities to complete the same assignments as other students. Accommodations do not alter the content of assignments, do not give students an unfair advantage, or in the case of assessments, do not change what a test measures. They do make it possible for students with a learning disability to show what they know without being impeded by their disability." -National Center for Learning Disabilities
